We are asking rural communities to share how COVID-19 is impacting them and how teachers and teacher-leaders are adapting in the face of nationwide school closures. Read below for a great story from Deon Hall of Norris City, IL.

During this time of E-learning we have all been stretched. We have had to think outside of the box to be able to reach All of our students. What works for one family, may not work for another. We are reaching out to each student via text, email and classroom dojo. Each student has been given hard copies of work that is at their level. We have also been able to Google meet meeting with our students. We have sent postcards letting our kids know how much we miss them. As teachers we are here for our students and their families to help out in any way possible. We love and miss all of our students and we can't wait to see them again!
